After a shamefully long hiatus, I am returning to the blogging world. This fall has been incredibly busy – but to me fall is always a hectic time of year! I spent several weeks in France and Germany working on some research projects and writing. I compiled, finalized, and submitted an edited volume to my publisher for peer review at the end of October. I also had a conference in Cardiff the week before Christmas and writing the paper for that took up a fair bit of my time after I returned from Europe the first time. So in a way, there wasn’t much exciting to report from Kazakhstan since I was barely here or shut up in my apartment typing away!
I am back for good until at least March now, so back to writing and back to sharing more about life in Kazakhstan!
And thank you to everyone who sent messages saying they missed the blog! It’s heartwarming to know so many of you are active readers and that I’m not just talking to myself out here!
